Yesterday, Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) President Gordon Barnhart announced that Laurent Mougeot is stepping down after 12 years as SUMA’s chief executive officer.

Mougeot’s last day will be September 22, 2017. A search for SUMA’s new CEO will start in the coming weeks.

“Laurent has been a strong leader on the local government scene,” said Barnhart. “He has been an invaluable advisor and a good friend to many in the municipal world— in Canada and abroad. A true career civil servant, Laurent has worked with northern communities, rural municipalities, and the entire urban sector. I expect that he will continue to make a significant contribution to local governance in whatever role he decides to take on in the future. Our Board and staff will miss his wise counsel and his sense of humour.”

Mougeot said he plans to take some time off and travel before considering new opportunities.

“Forty years goes by quickly when one enjoys work as much as I did. I have met and worked with so many great people and developed strong friendships,” Mougeot said. “SUMA and our member municipalities play a key role in defining our quality of life. Every day we all access at least half a dozen of municipal services without ever thinking about the complexity of our municipal operations. Local governments matter a lot in our lives!”

The Saskatoon StarPhoenix reported that Mougeot was proud of his accomplishments in creating a municipal revenue sharing formula and SUMAsure, an municipal insurance program.
